gardenprojectThe Meditation Garden at La Posada is the first phase of a nearly seven-acre Central Park that will provide an inviting outdoor setting to engage the mind, body and spirit for the over 700 residents of one of Southern Arizona’s leading Continuum of Care retirement communities. Since 1987, La Posada’s mission has been to maximize the well-being and care of seniors through state-of-the-art facilities, compassionate staff and its beautiful 100-acre campus set in the midst of mature pecan groves. As the campus develops its remaining acreage, the value of a central green space grows for the entire La Posada community. Located in the heart of the campus, the park serves as a meeting ground for the entire community and as a green link between neighborhoods. This park location enhances the resort-style setting and provides a scenic landmark as visitors and residents arrive and circulate.

As team leader I collaborated with the lead designers Rebeca Field and Helen Walthier to design a space that enhances the well being of the community through the creation of a shaded, visually stimulating, healing meditation garden.
